Shakhtar midfielder Fred: Man Utd have made very strong bid

Alex Sandro Man Utd

Belgium defender Alderweireld and Brazil midfielder Fred have both been selected for their World Cup squads.

Manchester United are set to make Brazilian midfielder Fred their first signing of the summer, according to reports.

Manchester United refused to sign Lazio midfielder Sergej Milinkovic-Savic since the club has no intention of spending Euro 100 million on a potential reserve.

United finished second in the Premier League - their highest placing since Sir Alex Ferguson retired in 2013 - but were 19 points behind champions Manchester City.

Fred has played for Brazil seven times and is set to feature for his country in Russian Federation this summer.

Sources have told ESPN FC that United are keen to secure the services of the 25-year-old if they can agree a deal with Shakhtar Donetsk. During his time with Shakhtar, Fred has won ten trophies including three league titles and three domestic cups.

A new central midfielder has been high on the Portuguese manager's wish list, especially with club captain Michael Carrick hanging up his boots to form part of the backroom staff and Marouane Fellaini - who will become a free agent this summer - yet to sign a new deal.

"They are two good players, better together than separated".

"I have a versatility on the pitch and I'm a multi-skilled player able to play in both midfield positions".

While it is interesting that Mourinho is signing a similar-ish player to the Frenchman, there is no reason why they can not complement each other in a midfield three.

Jose Mourinho will implement Fred alongside Paul Pogba and Nemanja Matic.

Long-time assistant Rui Faria has left Old Trafford, ending his 18-year association with Mourinho to spend more time with his family before embarking on a career in management. Lucescu did not use Fred too frequently but, after the player was suspended having tested positive for hydrochlorothiazide during the 2015 Copa America, he developed into a leader until Paulo Fonseca.
